Farm Auction

We went to a farm auction, I like to go so I can photograph all the strange things they have. Lots of the farm machinery is old and rusty, so makes for very interesting photographs. It was not the best light for taking photographs, the sun was bright and high and cast lots of shadows.
Like this old tractor seat.
And tank.
An old John Deere tractor.
An old Farmall
Some tractor tires are really big.
My beautiful daughter with a couple of tractor tires.
 Ducks, some have lost their heads.
Milk cans
Cans in a row.
 And this really wonderful old Chevy.
And homeward bound.

Burlington-Bristol Bridge

I have always been fascinated with bridges, and since I live near the Burlington-Bristol bridge, I have taken hundreds of photographs of it. I saw this photo opportunity on a rainy day. There was a heavy fog when I drove down to the bridge. I had my camera in a plastic bag because it was drizzling. The fog almost obscured the bridge, you can just make out faint outlines above the fence railing.
The fog hung close to the ground around these trees.
The rain came down harder and I actually got back in my Jeep for a short time. I photographed this tree through the windshield.
Then the rain slowed and the fog started to lift a little.
The bridge rose up in the sky and the fog settled down on the water.
In an hour or so the rain stopped, the sun came out and the waters was as smooth as silk.

Philadelphia Flower Show

The theme of the show was "Springtime in Paris".  This is he entrance to the flower show, representing the Eiffel Tower.

  A singer

Can-can dancers
My personal favorite was the "Phantom of the Opera" display.
The show was beautiful. We finished the day with dinner at "The Kingdom of Vegetarians" restaurant, tired but happy.

Black and White Day

Today is a black and white photograph day. I really love B&W photography.
All the above photographs were taken at the Philadelphia Flower Show. My next post will be a color presentation of my visit to the show.
